At the entrance of the museum, two stunning polyptyches welcomed and invited to exploration. The magistral work of art “Madonna dell’umiltà” by Lorenzo Veneziano that attracted my attention.
It was extraordinary to observe the peculiar Virgin Mary’s gaze, which had something intensely alive. Indeed, it was as if she did not take her attention away from my own sight, while I moved from one side of the artwork to the other.
